states and president obama, especially when it came to the future relationship between the u.s. and afghanistan. he talked about the strategic partnership that both president obama and karzai signed last spring. he said that the u.s. is in violation of it because they haven't handed over prison detainees from bagram into afghan hands as promised and this hinder is in future partnership with the afghans, and the americans beyond 2014, although he had a lot of strong worpd words when i asked if the sacrifices throughout at 11-year war was worth it, tens of thousands of afghan civilian lives he said in the end it did bring some stability to afghanistan. let's listen to what he had to say. >> it did bring to afghanistan overall stability. it did take back afghanistan to its international presence. it did bring afghanistan of economic well-being. some profited much more, some did less. but it did not bring security to afghanistan. and, as i said earlier, in parts of the country it made it worse. >> reporter: chris, i also asked him if he trusted the united states' motives in afgha
of greenpeace international has sent to president obama, as the united states comes under increasing criticism. we will speak to kumi naidoo and samantha smith, as well as a panel of youth climate activists. first, to egypt. >> we hold president morsi and the government completely responsible for the violence happening in egypt today. what is happening at the presidential palace at the moment, the violence, without the protection of the country, is an announcement from the country and president that they do not hold their responsibility to protect the country. >> the egyptian army has deployed tanks outside of the presidential palace in cairo and six people have died in clashes between supporters and opponents of president morsi. we will speak to sharif abdel kouddous. >> this is democracy now!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are broadcasting from doha, qatar. egyptian forces have deployed outside a cairo after violent clashes between pro and anti- government demonstrators left six people dead and more than 400 injured. the violence marked a major escalation in
the "washington post" that they share a vision with president obama and the united states. what the president is doing is putting the united states in a position where our enemies are getting stronger. iranians have a nuclear weapon on the way. they're working to try to build one. you certainly don't hear very much about that any more. in the meantime, the president has stood aside. now, he in the last 24 hours was pretty strong in terms of threatening the syrians if they do use chemical weapons. let's hope that he, in fact lives up to that. it would be a fitters. >> sean: we'll look back through the history, the prism of history. when the world has to deal with the islamists, it's going to be ugly and probably on a scale of world war three. that's my sad prediction and i pray that i'm wrong. >> when people look back and say who lost the middle east, it will be pretty clear that it was barack obama. >> sean: good to see you. coming up, he's the photographer who snapped an image of a new york city man after being pushed onto the subway tracks. now there's outrage that he chose to take pictures
to concentrate on making sure this economy gets blamed on obama. there are things they can do like propose tax cuts or rather tax hikes for the truly rich, ie, warren buffett. no more state and low tax deductions. cut out that hollywood foin accounting. let's go after the 1% of the 1%. forget the 1% of income earners. >> sean: there's a lot of good ideas there. >> thank you. >> sean: they have to stand against america going broke. >> they can do that by making clear it's not a good deal, making speeches, and not raising taxes on the job creators. >> sean: how about they pass a bill that extends all the bush tax cuts. how about that? >> then the senate will reject it. >> sean: then who is to blame? >> at some point if the bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, i promise you the republicans will get blamed. there are some things the republicans do that feed into what the media is selling america. >> sean: wait a minute. i want to make sure i understand. are you saying, then, for pr purposes that they should give in to obama on the tax rate? >> not exactly. well, yeah, i guess i a
from president obama obviously, from secretary of state hillary clinton and from the british foreign secretary and indeed from the russians. so that tends to say that this conspiracy theory, that this isn't really happening might not be true. the question is perhaps what kind of game president assad may bow playing here. and some -- may be playing here. and some say it is essentially about a wharf nerves. as the -- a war of nerves. as he moves to the center of damascus he gets more desperate, and signaling he may be about to use the chemical weapons, he may believe he puts himself in a better negotiating position if he takes the decision to try to seek asylum somewhere. >> we will see. jonathon, thanks so much. now some perspective on just how devastating sarin gas can be. as we reported, it is one of the deadliest chemicals known around the world. it is five times the strength of cyanide. one drop can kill. the affects on the body are nothing short of horrifying. let's bring in the head of the department of medicine at vanderbilt university medical center in nashville. great to see
so that when the next storm comes through they will be damaged again. >> reporter: mr. obama won the battleground state of virginia 51% to 48% over mitt romney. his victory was helped by taking 56% of the vote in the states southeast tidewater region that is home to norfolk. here, where streets like this are frequently under water, some people are hoping the election means political debate about climate change may be over. >> in the last month, this neighborhood has flooded three times. >> reporter: skip stiles heads wetlands watch, a local environmental group that works throughout the state. he took us to another vulnerable area downtown. >> this is an old apartment building. it has been here since 1904. so the abstract notion that we have had a foot of sea level rise in last 100 years. you can mark it against this building. we had a nor'easter in 2006 that came about here, about where sandy came. if you think about it 100 years ago that would be a foot and a half down, it wouldn't even have touched this building. problem is 100 years going forward, if you go up three feet, in 1
. and i think we are all saying to president obama who has now stated very clearly there will be drastic consequences for assad and his government if they use weapons of mass destruction. we are with you. there is strong support across congress if the president takes the strong action that's necessary to prevent a very, very historically horrific humanitarian disaster in syria. senator. >> thank you, senator. we do represent a broad range of views from within the senate, the republican caucus, the democratic caucus, but there is a unanimous view here today that we support president obama in announcing a red line that assad, who has murdered tens of thousands of his people in the last two years, take the unthinkable step of using advanced chemical weapons against his own people, there will be prompt consequences. this is not an easy thing to get a consensus in the senate on virtually anything. i join the statement to send a clear message to those from outside the halls of the capitol who see is in division on fiscal and policy matters, there has been division. but on the matter of standin
want to go in a different direction. obama's direction. thanks victoria. up in the great state of rhode island. joey he's on a tear here in chicago. what do you say joey? >> caller: good morning, bill. i say let's get out the government grilled cheese. let's go live in our cardboard boxes and go over the cliff. i am so sick of these spoiled rich people! they're a bunch of spoiled rotten babies! i'm cooking up the government grilled cheese. we're going over the cliff! >> buckle up, here we go! >> bill: buckle up, here we go. i'm with you joey. that's the best strategy. sometimes, as i said to the president last night on your behalf hold the line! hang tough! stick to your principles. this time we got them! two years ago, it was a different scenario. two years ago i wish he hadn't done it but i understand why. the president felt that he had to cave in. not this time! mr. president, as i told him last night hold the line! when we come back, karl rove and dick morris, are you going to miss them? michael
. >> senators from the storm ravaged states believe the obama administration will propose roughly $50 billion in relief, far short of what the states want, $82 billion. >> is there that kind of money lying around? >> certainly not that kind of money lying around. it's such a complex time right now we're dealing with a host of issues. we're going over the fiscal cliffs. >> senator susan collins are facing budget cuts they would like to pay for the storm cleanup. the uncertain fate of the relief money comes little more than a month after the jaw dropping pre-rel pre-election image of president obama and governor christie shoulder to shoulder, a time when he promised to help victims quickly. >> i want you to cut through red tape. i want you to cut through bureaucracy. there's no excuse for inaction at this point. >> the white house said the president remains committed. >> there's no question what the president saw on staten island that enormous suffering continues. that's why we're looking at states and localities to continue the effort to assist in the recovery. >> reporter: a top congressional
is looking at that has led to some of these warnings from president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton. the question, of course, is what is the administration to do now? suzanne. >> how are people reacting to this news, the fact that you've got the defense secretary now what it seems to be getting closer to some of the statements we have seen about real concern over the possibility of these chemical weapons? >> yeah. i think that's exactly the point. secretary panetta going on to say, as others have, but saying it very emphatically just a few moments ago, that assad needs to know there will be consequences if he decides to use those chemical weapons against his own people, and, of course, that's as much a message to assad, to iran, which is heavily involved in syria right now, and also, to the middle east dawas in the region. turkey, israel, majoritiedan, as well as lebanon that borders syria and are very concerned about this prospect. what you are seeing really is the rhetoric, the concern, the latest intelligence, and that this is now becoming a regional concern throughout th
states was carol moseley-braun and the second one was barack obama. the history of the republican party has always been that of freedom for all people and that's what we try to convey in our movie and we are very successfully doing that, "the runaway slave." that's the message. >> reverend, excuse me one second. >> mayor, there's been a lot of talk about how the hispanic vote has helped the president win votes like florida and nevada. but what's been less talked about is how the african-american vote gave the president higher totals in states like georgia as well as mississippi. when you hear what the reverend has to say in regard to the democratic party modern day, do you agree with what he's saying? >> if this weren't such a serious topic, his comments would be laughable. the president won a minority groups across the boar, not on latinos but asians. but he did it because all of these people are very smart and they understood who had their interests at heart and who didn't. what we know from the reverend's comments and other people's comments such as john boehner and other republican
just guessed it. president of the united states, barack obama. >>> the poem is called "other." it's written by a beautiful young woman. her name is neo. sadly, that word other is how people are forced to describe ethnicity because they don't fit if a certain box. she says she was too light skinned for the black kids she grew up around. teasing and taunts of childhood still haunt her today. soledad o'brien tells her story. >> it's a poem about her life. but neo jones is struggling to recite it it aalways called me white girl. i was never ashamed of myself until they taught me to be ashamed. >> reporter: she calls it "other" or the biracial poem. it's about being bullied by black kids. >> i remember the taunts well in to the nights. the brands of vanilla took years to fade. >> reporter: now the tough part. she has to perform it at the first spoken word poetry competition of the season. it's painful. >> i pretended. no black mother to explain how this tall white man ended up with a short chestnut skinned girl. they doubted he was ever my father. >> reporter: seven hours until show ti
.s. administration officials, u.s. president barack obama, u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton that the use of chemical weapons in syria was a red line for which syria and the bashar al assad regime would face severe consequences if they ever did cross that red line and utilize chemical weapons against the people of syria. >> and we have no idea what those severe consequences would be, right? >> reporter: that's right, we don't. you know, people speculate that this would mean some type of military intervention, but we also know that a lot of world powers have not wanted to intervene militarily in syria. that they've wanted what's going on in syria to happen within syria. but the fear is if chemical weapons are utilized, and again, the syrian regime has said on many occasions, they are not going to use chemical weapons against their population, that that would mean there would be some type of military intervention, although it's unclear what scope that type of military intervention would take. >> mohammed jamjoom live in beirut, thanks very much. >>> a sobering cup of joe from the starbucks
of such a mission. secretary of state clinton is nonetheless talking very tough calling for assad to step down as the obama administration has done for the past 15 months, but refusing, still, to detail which consequences those would be. >> we will explore with like-minded countries what more we can do to bring the conflict to an end, but that will require the assad regime making the decision to participate in a political transition, ending the violence against its own people, and we hope that they do so because we believe, as you know, that their fall is inevitable, but it's a question of how many people will die until that day occurs. lou: the violence, and morsi protesters in the street, and large scale clashes, worst of the violence since morsi proposed his powers. a third of the aides resigned now, and more than 225 injured in the clashes since they broke out. turning to the president and his views, steering clear of my public statements on egypt or morsi or the administrations, but jay carney responded to a question on the administration's actions on the turmoil, a scripted response that
. >> it was week. >> president obama has said that he has pen in hand and he's prepared to sign the middle income tax cuts. >> you have a president of the united states that has the mighty pen. you bailed out the banks. bail out the american people that don't have homes for the holidays. >> in his second term i hope he will offer fresh ideas and serious leadership. >> we need a response from the white house. >> i'm hea here to tell you that nobody wants to get this done more than me. >> it's true that president obama won reelection and i congratulate him on his victory, but on january 20th, he'll face a stagnant economy and a fiscal mess. >> our people in an overwhelming way supported the reelection of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that. >> you want the answer to solving the fiscal cliff? we put an offer on the table. the president now has to engage. >> you might even say he'll inherit these problems. >> the president is going away for christmas. he's going to hawaii for 20 something days. where am i going to be? where are my neighbor
/11, that a terrorist group might be able to get possession of chemical weapons. you've seen how the united states has reacted this week. president obama made a very pointed warning publicly to the syrian leadership. secretary clinton has done that twice on her current trip. secretary clinton will be meeting with the russian foreign minister and the u.n. mediator in syria today in brevlin. >> let's talk about those meetings. >> you can be sure that this issue of chemical weapons will be at the top of the list. >> no question about that. what are the options there? what can the international community do at this point if, in fact, they are already in a position where they're loading these components on to the weapons? >> well, one is this public message from the united states, from the nato secretary general and from the russians. the syrian government, including assad personally, will be held accountable. second is perhaps to see if the russians can use their influence. they're the big egest arms supplier to syria, the biggest ally that syria has, to dissuade the syrians from letting this chemical wea
that the reports that syria is readying chemical weapons are rumors. >> sources tell cbs news the united states has detected signs that the syrian government is preparing chemical weapons for possible use. >>> president obama spoke on the phone with house speaker john boehner on wednesday, while his treasury secretary said the white house is, in fact, ready to go straight over the fiscal cliff. >> if you're really going to be serious about deficit reduction, it can't just be about taxes. it has to be about spending cuts, too. >>> prince william's wife catherine is out of the hospital after treatment for acute morning sickness. >> reporter: we were told from the beginning that this hospital stay would last 18 days and that's exactly what it turned out to be. >>> software developer john mcafee is no longer a fugitive, arrested in guatemala a month after his neighbor in belize was murdered. >>> the creators of cell phone technology pinpointed mcafee's location. police didn't know where he was. >> reporter: now that marijuana is legal here in washington, the state is going to s
